Pitch Perfect Sequel Planned

Pitch Perfect was just released on DVD, and it looks like a sequel is already in the works!

There’s a lot of reasons to enjoy Pitch Perfect, not least of which is Anna Kendrick‘s musical cups routine. Add to this some good gags, breezy-silly pop music and a strong supporting cast and I’m not surprised the film was a popular hit.

And so it follows that Universal will want a sequel. Speaking to Movieweb, male lead Skylar Astin says he’s on the wish list for returning cast members – and he’s not the only one:

I do have a meeting with a Universal representative next week. And I know that Rebel Wilson had hers last weekend. It’s definitely a talking point.

I’m sure that they’ll be speaking to Kendrick too, and if they can get her – or if they have her on a multi-film contract, and exercise that option – we’ll be seeing a sequel.

The original Pitch Perfect opens in UK cinemas this Friday. I saw it in LA a few weeks back and enjoyed it, with a few reservations about its portrayal of gay characters and a bit of naff slapstick. It’s broadly comparable to Bring It On but certainly not as sharp or well made. Still, I think it’s fun and that’s sometimes enough.

I hope there are new developments with this soon! Also, if you are a Canadian fan, there is a contest to win a blu-ray combo pack of Pitch Perfect at Tribute.ca. Screencaps soon!

Anna Kendrick And Kristin Chenoweth Sing Wicked’s “For Good”

Oh sorry! You might have thought that sound was a weeping tea kettle or an asthmatic mouse or Garth from Wayne’s World having an emotional meltdown, but it was actually us trying to stifle our sobs while watching Anna Kendrick and Kristin Chenoweth sing “For Good” from the musical Wicked. Those two are like tiny, hilarious angels! Luckily for us, a fan shot the gorgeous duet at Trevor Live in Hollywood last night. The evening of song and dance and quiet, happy crying benefited the Trevor Project, which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ youth and oh god, here come the waterworks again!

Obviously we knew the original Wicked cast member and Pitch Perfect star would crush the already tear-jerking song. It’s almost enough to erase the memory of tween Anna singing that Cabaret song from our minds! Almost! Kendrick and Chenoweth were joined at the event by a host of other performers and famous audience members, from Amy Poehler to Sarah Hyland to Katy Perry, all of whom hopefully remembered to bring some Kleenex in their tiny purses. We can’t even talk about how good Kristin’s hair…looks…without…getting…misty. Oh, why fight it? Look upon their adorableness and weep {vh1.com}
